Browns’ Joe Thomas to miss remainder of season

A brutal Cleveland Browns season just got worse.

Cleveland dropped to 0-7 on Sunday with more quarterback drama. But the bigger story was the NFL-record snaps streak concluding when Joe Thomas exited the game.

Thomas tore his triceps and will need surgery, ending his season.



Thomas played over 11 seasons without missing a down. With the Browns spiraling toward the first pick in the draft again, the hope will be that Thomas is fully ready to go for 2018, at least providing some optimism after a two-year stretch that may go down as the worst in NFL history.

Thomas confirmed it himself on Twitter, calling it a “tough break.”
